Apple kills off short-lived iPhone 5

iphone 5 ripSay goodbye to the iPhone 5. Last year’s flagship smartphone from Apple is set to be discontinued in the wake of the newly-unveiled iPhone 5S.

The iPhone 5, as far as I am aware, has had the shortest life of any of the iPhones thus far.

It’s year-long reign at the top has been cut short thanks to Apple revealing not only a new flagship handset, but also a (slightly) cheaper smartphone in the form of the iPhone 5C.

The iPhone 5C will soon be occupying the cheaper price point that the iPhone 5 would have slipped down into, it also sports similar specs to last year’s model, while giving Apple an all-new colourful product to promote at the same time.

The iPhone 4 will also now be discontinued – but that was always on the cards.

However, the iPhone 4S lives on!

For those looking to get in on the Apple-action super cheap, the 8GB iPhone 4S will now become the free option on contracts.
